5 things I learnt in my twenties

What I know for sure is that you will never be ready to enter in your twenties. I mean we know we are going to get there one day, some even have big plans for the day it will come but as for me, I was never ready to enter my twenties. I have come to realize:

1. We won’t be friends forever

I had countless friends, I can even say everyone knew my name or my face. I had a good list of guests whenever I wanted to throw a party. Those were the good old days, since I graduated from high school, my priorities changed and I lost touch with so many people 80% of my old “friends” are no longer my friends. I have only kept contacts with a few who understand who I am becoming and we are helping each other to reach our full potential. The smaller the circle the clear the vision

2. The meaning of freedom

Now that you are free you can do whatever the hell you want. I was waiting for this time to go where my parents didn’t want me to go. But the reality is even I am now free, I have to take care of my own life, my parents only guided me and now I have the choice to go big or go home.

3. Reconsider and adjust with your childhood dreams

I didn’t give up on my dreams I have adjust them to the woman I am becoming. I have had so many childhood dreams when I try to recall all of them, some were incredibly unrealistic, some others were pretty cool and some others were just: “girl what was wrong with you?” Do you do that too?

4. Being authentic is the way forward

You will never go wrong on this one. The more authentic you become, the more people can relate to you and better express themselves. Be yourself, love yourself. Not everyone will like you but it is okay, people who love your true self will stay. Join selflovies_society a community of amazing people on their journey to selflove, development and acceptance

5. It is no one fault if you fail but yours

It is your life, you are responsible for that, you and only you can choose what affect you and how it affects you. If you mess up your life is totally your fault

What lessons have you learnt in your twenties?

Till next Sunday

Be yourself

  1. I love reading posts like this. I’ve definitely learnt about friendships and failures during my 20s, too! I completely agree with you when you say “It is your life, you are responsible for that”. I used to spend a lot of time when I was younger, just wallowing and waiting for things to change, and now I’m older and wiser, I see it’s up to me to change things I’m not happy about.

  2. I definitely agree with the friendship part. I fell out of contact with some friends when I entered my 20s. We are still friends on Facebook, but in day to day life I never talk to them. I have a small circle of friends who I actually talk to!

  3. This is so incredible and you learn so much in your twenties. I learned that just because I thought I failed doesn’t mean that it was a failure, it made me into who I am and launched me into the direction I was suppose to go.

  4. The first one is such a harsh reality; when you’re younger you’re always thinking that your friends will be your friends until the day you die and sometimes that happens. Most often it doesn’t. But, it’s always important to appreciate your friends at whatever stage of life you and they are at.

    Great post! x

  5. “It is no ones fault if you fail but yours” is my favourite, its something I’ve come to learn recently at 23. And also the opposite, success is entirely up to you. The only person that can change your life, is you.

  6. Some very true points here.

    “It is no ones fault if you fail but yours”: I find that a bit harsh. It is your fault if you don’t try but sometimes things don’t go according to plan and therefore you can’t blame yourself for every little thing that goes wrong. And also, failing is part of learning. If at first you don’t succeed (ie, fail), try, try again.

  7. I think the lesson about friends is so good to acknowledge. The smaller the circle the clearer the vision. Find friends that push you to be better not what they want you to be. What I can also tell you is 30 was for me the toughest 10 years of my life. And now that I am in my mid-40s my priorities are changing again and my vision is becoming even clearer. Getting ahead becomes much less important and living a happy life becomes everything. If I could give someone in their 20s one piece of advice is to not give up on your dreams just to fit into what you think you should be doing with your life. Instead work on what you want your dream life to look like.
    Great article.
